ONE OF THE GREATEST COMEDIANS

Deemed the “greatest living interpreter of Groucho Marx’s material” by The New York Times, Frank Ferrante brings his acclaimed production as seen on PBS and in New York to Milwaukee! This fast paced 90 minutes of hilarity features the best Groucho one-liners and songs including “Hooray For Captain Spalding,” and “Lydia, the Tattooed Lady.” And don’t be shy – you might find yourself part of the show as Ferrante ad-libs throughout the performance in grand Groucho style. Called “nothing short of masterful” by the Chicago Tribune, come prepared to be entertained by the true master of comedy.

A GREAT AMERICAN CLASSIC

Faded southern belle Amanda frets constantly over her two live-in adult children—the painfully shy Laura and her restless poet brother, Tom.

Bloomsday by Steven Dietz

Bloomsday by Steven Dietz

April 6th, 2017

Robert returns to Dublin to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart during a James Joyce literary tour 35 years ago. Dancing backwards through time, the older couple retrace their steps to discover their younger selves. Through young Robbie and Caithleen, they relive the unlikely, inevitable events that brought them – only briefly – together. This Irish time travel love story blends wit, humor and heartache into a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it is past. The one-that-got-away, revisited.

La Sylphide | Sans Pleurer

La Sylphide | Sans Pleurer

April 6th, 2017 - April 8th, 2017

Milwaukee Ballet pairs a charming classic with a cutting edge contemporary work in their spring double bill running April 6-9 at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.

This traditional production of La Sylphide is regarded as closer to the original than any other classical ballet being performed today. Mixing traditional classical dance and Scottish reels, this masterpiece blends humor and romance to tell the story of a Scottish farmer who receives an unexpected kiss from a “sylph,” or winged spirit, that changes his life forever.

Timothy O’Donnell’s new work, Sans Pleurer, showcases the physical and theatrical talents of the men of Milwaukee Ballet. This electric world premiere, which translates to “Without Tears,” explores the “boys don’t cry” philosophy and its long-term effects on men.
